      Here at Guatemala we don´t have a lot of korean stores, I can´t find the chilli flakes that are used in the kimchi recipe. All I can find is Dried Chilli, it has seeds and flakes, can I use that? Because I did´nt see seeds in the video. Please help, my korean restaurant shut down And I really miss eating kimchi!

      Just use any dry chilli pepper. Just make sure it does not have ANY other spices in it; it should be just pure chilli powder, and nothing more.

      The chilli should be spicy, but not extremely so. The powder shouldn’t have seeds in it, but it should be a bit coarse.

      I think you could remove seeds from those dry chillies, and grind them in your food processor to get a coarse powder. Experiment !

      I still think that the result with korean chilli powder is a little bit better, but not that much so.

      Reminds me, I have a lot of asian chives in my garden, and I need to turn them into kimchi I think…
